Made a mistake with your regular payroll? In some cases you can reverse your payroll so it does not go out incorrectly.

Reversing vs. Cancelling

Payroll processes at 4:30pm PT. You may cancel your payroll before it processes. If it has processed, but it is still before 7:00am PT the day before your pay date, you may be able to reverse the payroll.

  1. Click on the Reports tab.

Run an off-cycle payroll

If you need to run your payroll again after you have reversed some employees, you can run an off-cycle payroll.
